We will do our best to minimise any disruption while the works are carried out and thank you in advance for your patience whilst we create amazing facilities to be enjoyed for years to come.

Work will start on the dry side changing rooms and toilets on Monday 2nd of March and these facilities will close for 2 weeks until the 14th March. Customers should use the swimming pool changing areas and lockers during this period.

Further works in the café during this same period mean it will be closed from 2nd – 10th March while the new pool viewing area is created and flooring and redecoration work is completed.

Work on the reception and entrance area also starts on 2nd March but most of this work will be done overnight to minimise disruption to customers.

Work is progressing as scheduled and should be completed by the end of March as planned. Don’t forget to check the development board in reception!
